What the fuck is wrong with fuck?
ME: I was looking in a dictionary from 1966 – Webster’s New International Dictionary, actually – for the word “FUCK”. It’s not listed. What’s the excuse? It’s not a new word. “Fuck” is as old as the 16th century. Not to mention that, in my humble opinion, “Fuck” is one of the most versatile words in the English language.
MISTY’S BRAIN: Fuck, yes! It’s a great interjection. And really handy when you want to make a kickass compliment: “You look fucking great!”
MISTY’S BODY: Thanks! You’re fucking smart!
MISY’S BRAIN: Don’t fucking exaggerate!
MISTY’S RIGHT FOOT: Your opinion isn’t worth a dime.
MISTY’S HAIR: A fuck, you mean.
MISTY’S RIGHT FOOT: I am a civilized foot. I don’t use the F-word.
MISTY’S HAIR: You use euphemisms. How gauche!
MISTY’S RIGHT FOOT: There’s a good reason why it’s not in the dictionary. It’s the ugliest word in the English language.
MISTY’S LEFT FOOT: And there’s a good reason why you often get stepped on.
ME: I think it’s a mistake it’s not in the dictionary. If aliens visit one day, there will be a lot of ‘Fuck’ said, and it will save people lots of trouble if the aliens understand the wide range of emotions that ‘Fuck’ conveys.
MISTY’S HAIR: It will save those who say ‘Fuck, yes!’
